THE former boyfriend of Kim Fuller will appear before magistrates this morning charged with her murder.

Detectives charged nursing auxiliary Sean Hilton last night with murdering Mrs Fuller, a mother-of-two, from Exning, near Newmarket.

Hilton, 38, of Brook Street, Soham, who works at Papworth Hospital in Cambridge, will appear before Peterborough magistrates today.

Mrs Fuller, 34, went missing on Thursday and her body was discovered at a disused airbase in Langham, Norfolk, three days later.

A post-mortem examination carried out by Home Office pathologist Dr Michael Heath showed Mrs Fuller died from asphyxiation.

Mrs Fuller's mother Connie Buckley - with whom she lived in St Wendreds Way, Exning - and stepfather Pete travelled to the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital yesterday to formally identify her body.

Speaking afterwards, they said in a statement: “We could not have wished for a better daughter than Kim, we are completely devastated to have lost her in this way.”

Mrs Fuller, who has two young daughters, worked as a customer adviser at the Nationwide Building Society in Mildenhall, which was closed on Monday as a mark of respect.

Alan Graham, Nationwide area manager, said: “Kim will be greatly missed, she was a fantastic people-person, at ease with colleagues and customers alike.

“She was extremely caring, always willing to put others first and willing to drop everything to help her colleagues out.”
